Cold As Ice

Cold As Ice

It may be Winter Games, but the bedroom games are about to begin…Competing in South Korea on the world stage is hard enough.Having to spend the entire press tour beforehand with a woman who hates me? Karma really is a bitch.While she’s spent the last four years loathing me, I’ve spent them ignoring the guilt that gnaws at my stomach. All Mia Salter cares about is that I’m...

    I'm practically a broken record now because I'm always sharing the fact that I absolutely LOVE sports romances, but here I am again, admitting that fact. I love sports romances, and I have a serious soft spot for ones that tie in with the Olympics, Winter or Summer...doesn't matter. Some people like to read Christmas or Halloween stories around the holidays, well me...I like to get my Olympic fever going with a good ol' sports romance. When I saw that one of my favourite author duos, Piper Rayne

    I'm practically a broken record now because I'm always sharing the fact that I absolutely LOVE sports romances, but here I am again, admitting that fact. I love sports romances, and I have a serious soft spot for ones that tie in with the Olympics, Winter or Summer...doesn't matter. Some people like to read Christmas or Halloween stories around the holidays, well me...I like to get my Olympic fever going with a good ol' sports romance. When I saw that one of my favourite author duos, Piper Rayne, were writing a series of books revolving around Olympic snowboarders, I was super excited and I knew that I needed to read them...well, I've now read the first one and let me tell you, they did an amazing job!

    I absolutely loved COLD AS ICE! Grady and Mia were amazing characters. I loved their passion for snowboarding, I loved the tension between them, and I loved how Piper and Rayne uncovered the shared past between them. As soon as I started reading I didn't want to stop! The mix of tropes in this story was pretty interesting, and it definitely had me compelled! The majority of the story is told through Grady's POV and I loved that! He was cocky, but he was pretty damn endearing and had a hidden sweeter side that I loved getting to see. Mia was sooooo fierce, and I absolutely adored her! I loved how driven she was, and I loved seeing her relationship grow with Grady. They were seriously sexy together! I also loved their friends so much! I'm extremely excited for the two follow-up books in the Bedroom Games series...luckily they're being released every two weeks so we won't have to wait long! ;)

    COLD AS ICE was sexy, funny, and just an absolutely wonderful ride! If you’re looking for an awesome Winter Olympics romance this is definitely one worth reading! I adored Grady and Mia, and I loved that we got a prequel of their story at the end of the book, too. Now I can’t wait to read Dax and Demi’s story and I’m looking forward to some Grady and Mia cameos! ;)

    Loved. Loved. Loved! Like all other PR books this was so good. There’s drama. steam. And excitement. A little of everything. The story itself was super great and I loved the characters! I can’t wait for the next book. Definitely recommend. **Voluntarily read and reviewed this book as an arc. 😋

    Thoroughly enjoyed this enemies to lovers, ex best friend’s little sister, and second chance at love romantic comedy! What a great concept staging this at the Winter Classic (also known as the Winter Games) and getting to experience love on the slopes.

    Grady Kale and Mia Salter have a long history. They grew up in the same town and Mia is four years younger than Grady and her brother Brandon, who she followed around and wanted to emulate. Mia and Grady are world class snowboarders that compete in the halfpipe. They are representing the US in the Winter Classic and both are chosen to go on tour to promote the games. The problem? Four years ago, a tragedy happened and Mia blames Grady for it and she hates him. Grady feels guilt. They have to find a way to work together. Mia had a crush on Grady for years and Grady was more than attracted to Mia. You know the saying there is a fine line between love and hate. Lines are crossed.

    This was such a fun romp and I blew through it! I have never read a book about snowboarders or about Olympic athletes and this was such a great change from my usual sports romance. It held my attention entirely. There was of a great balance of snowboard action, steam and hilarity. There was great chemistry between Grady and Mia. The story is told in Grady’s POV with Mia’s POV in the epilogue. The secondary characters are awesome and provided a great set up for future books.

    I thoroughly enjoyed every page! Get ready for the Winter Games by picking up this new exciting series!

    Yay! A new series by Piper Rayne! I love sports romances but I’ve never read about snowboarder before. There’s always a first, right?!

    Grady Kale stole my heart. He was such a cutie, passionate about his sport, caring about others, funny and down to earth despite his success. But heavy guilt was pressing down on him because he blamed himself for what happened to his best friend.

    Yay! A new series by Piper Rayne! I love sports romances but I’ve never read about snowboarder before. There’s always a first, right?!

    Grady Kale stole my heart. He was such a cutie, passionate about his sport, caring about others, funny and down to earth despite his success. But heavy guilt was pressing down on him because he blamed himself for what happened to his best friend.

    Four years of carrying around feelings of guilt about what happened to his best friend, Grady now has to face the music when his past catches up with him. He rather focuses on training for the winter classics because he wants to show everyone that he's the best, but what he didn't anticipate was going on a press tour with Mia Salter. All these years he kept his distance as far as it was possible with them being in the same sports environment. Now he has to face his demons head on in form of this feisty and stunningly beautiful woman.

    Mia once had a crush on him but nowadays her hate for him overrules any other feelings she had.

    I loved all the characters. This author duo always manages to build great personalities and loveable characters. Mia was a strong, confident and independent woman and I loved her razzing Grady. Those two as well as the other boys, Dax, Beckett and Brandon, had me laughing a lot during this read. The easy banter between Mia and Grady was the heart of the story and I enjoyed their comfortableness around each other.

    I had so much fun reading this story. There were many laugh-out-loud moments and despite the history of what happened to Brandon and how Grady dealt with it, the story was not too heavy but very funny, sweet and lighthearted. Although the dark cloud above Grady’s head was very present as well as the baggage he carried around on top of the pressure to succeed.

    Brandon lost everything and Grady had it all. How unfair is life?! But your fate is in your hands, you just have to make the best of it.

    Such a fun book to read leading up to the Winter Olympics, and I'm really looking forward to the next 2!

    Mia and Grady's story was an easy, sweet, and sexy read. I loved that it was low on angst, even with the history that caused a divide between their families finally coming to a head. I really liked both of these characters. Grady's terrific. Tough and competitive, with a softer side. He was holding onto a lot of guilt because of what happened with him and Mia's brother, his best friend. Mia w

He was holding onto a lot of guilt because of what happened with him and Mia's brother, his best friend. Mia was great, strong and just a little bit sassy. She wasn't afraid to stand up to Grady and let him know what she was thinking.

    Being forced to work together leading up to the Winter Games was probably the best thing that could have happened for not just Grady and Mia, but for their families as well.

    I can't wait to see what happens once the games really get started!

    I truly enjoy Piper Rayne books and Cold As Ice was No Different..

    Grady Kale and Mia Salter both compete in the winter classics snowboarding.. Grady and Mia's brother Brandon Salter were best friends up to 4 years prior when an accident happened.

    Because of the history with Grady and Mia they start out the Winter Classics hating each other. They go from Hating to Loving each other after a Truce is called.

    This book was good.. there was a lot of different emotions involved. I laughed out loud multi

    Grady Kale is more than ready to compete in the upcoming Winter Games. What he doesn’t expect is to be promoting the games with his female counterpart, a woman who has hated him for the last 4 years.

    Mia Salter is headed to her first Winter Games as the female favorite, but can she spend the weeks before the games being civil to Grady Kale?

    Grady and Mia have history. He used to be her brother’s best friend growing up, but 4 years ago he went after his dreams and left them behind. The friendship was broken and the animosity between them is palpable. But he immediately takes notice of grown up Mia and when they find themselves stranded together, they’ll have no other choice than confronting their demons and decide whether they will be forever enemies or if they can call a truce and move on.

    Once again the authors deliver a fast and fun read, this time with the backdrop of the winter games. The story is a nice mix of enemies to lovers, best friend’s little sister and sports romance in true Piper Rayne fashion. The characters, both main and secondary, are competitive among themselves and it makes for great banter and word play.

    I can’t wait for the next story in the series and I hope a Brandon book is also in the making.

    4 stars

    Snowboarding may not be a sport I'm very familiar with, but Piper Rayne sure makes it sound good in this story. I loved the team feel despite the individual performances. The way they all challenged and encouraged each other to be better, even as they were competing against one another. But what I really loved was Grady and Mia.

    This male POV story gave me what I felt was the perfect insight. Grady had all these thoughts and feelings and guilt throughout the story that I felt we readers really go

    This male POV story gave me what I felt was the perfect insight. Grady had all these thoughts and feelings and guilt throughout the story that I felt we readers really got to deep dive into with it only being from his POV. And seeing Mia through his eyes just helped me like him more. She was strong and driven and just awesome and it was all portrayed without needing to see her thoughts.

    This book was also the perfect intro to the series. I'm very excited to see what's going to come next with Beckett and Dax. And I'm secretly hoping Brandon might also get a book some day.

    Oh Piper and Rayne what have you done to me? I was once again rolling with laughter while simultaneously looking for a magazine to fan myself with!

    This is the perfect lead into the upcoming Winter Olympics and this story was perfect. There wasn't very much angst which I'm all for and given the history these two have together there could have been some serious tension. But alas, all Mia and Grady are focused on right now is get

    Oh Piper and Rayne what have you done to me? I was once again rolling with laughter while simultaneously looking for a magazine to fan myself with!

    This is the perfect lead into the upcoming Winter Olympics and this story was perfect. There wasn't very much angst which I'm all for and given the history these two have together there could have been some serious tension. But alas, all Mia and Grady are focused on right now is getting that Gold!

    Once our H/h get over the fact they have to work together to get their ultimate dream is when the games really begin. Grady is seeing a whole different Mia than what he's seen in the past and not only will he be getting the gold on the slopes, he's determined to get this beautiful and sexy woman in his bed!

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two on the slopes and everywhere else too. The duo known as Piper and Rayne have an amazing ability to write stories that pull the reader right into the story letting us live vicariously through their characters. I for one am all for heating up the slopes!!!
